GNR police have dismantled a major drug trafficking network in the Algarve, which led to the arrest of 19 people and the confiscation of over 24,000 individual doses of drugs – including heroin, cocaine and hashish.
Speaking to national tabloid Correio da Manhã, the head of the GNR operation Carlos Bengala said: “It is one of the biggest (drug) busts in recent years”.
Says CM, the scheme was reportedly led by two Brits.
A couple who run a pub up the road have been arrested tho’.
And there’s a certain selection of doormen at other pubs a little green around the gills at present.
Yes, drugs are decriminalised in Portugal. But they get distressed at foreigners selling, at foreigners buying. Locals are a medical problem, Johnny Foreigner a criminal one.
